Cathay Pacific Cargo B747-867F B-LJB arrived from Melbourne at 16.55hrs as 'CX022'. The aircraft departed at 18.35hrs to Hong Kong using the same flight number.

This flight was a very historic event for Adelaide Airport. Not only was it B-LJB's 1st visit to Adelaide. It was also the 1st visit of Boeing 747-8 Varient to visit Adelaide. The last visit by a Cathay Cargo aircraft was back on 28/12/11 when B747-400F B-HUH made a visit.
